Since I watched very little of NWA (pre-89 WCW), could you please elaborate how Dusty's booking (Dusty finishes, way too long Flair heel title reigns, putting himself over tons of times, making Luger look like a major choke artist etc) killed lots of territories for JCP, before they were bought by Turner.
Always fascinating to read your great viscious NWA/JCP rants from 83-88, and your Dusty hate shines through throughout, and I guess for good reason?
Why did Dusty keep on booking himself that strong, and do all these horrible booking decisions?
They weren't all horrible, but overall Dusty had one or two really good ideas that he used WAY too many times. The Dusty Finish pops a crowd the first time it's used, but if you screw the fans over and over, they stop buying tickets pretty quickly.
